Designer of the Day…Marimekko
I should probably start calling these posts something different because I’m noticing that many designers I’ve featured are more so labels than actualy designers…today’s feature “designer” is a good example of this – Marimekko because this label isn’t so much its own entity as it is a label that works with designers. I suppose that doesn’t matter so much because designers that work with Marimekko do have a certain aesthetic – one that is all about pattern and silhouette – 2 design concepts I love. Check out these looks from the Autumn/Winter 2010 collection…
I’ve written about Marimekko’s designer collaborations before but this time, I wanted to focus on the other collabos this print design studio does. The above looks are by a variety of designers including Chary Westburg and Mika Piirainin and definitely showcases what Marimekko is about – prints. This Finland based company also has an outstanding collection of interior design prints and other wares.
Marimekko has got to have something for everyone – men, women, kids, kitchenwear, bed linens, towels, fabrics…the list goes on and on. Their aesthetic also reminds me of Ikea – which I love just as much!
